Sheffield – United Kingdom
The annual gathering draws together the whole Electron Backscatter Diffraction (EBSD) community, including leading international research scientists and engineers, early career researchers, and students to highlight the latest developments, from technique development through to applications.
The EBSD meeting will take place in a virtual format.
We are anticipating contributions that range in scope spanning the geoscience, materials science & engineering, and mechanical engineering disciplines, as well as emerging applications from the biological communities. Talks will likely include state-of-the-art developments in instrumentation, new software algorithms, and new techniques developments, as well as the use of EBSD, transmission Kikuchi diffraction, electron channelling contrast imaging (ECCI) and related microscopy modalities. Additionally, we anticipate hearing applications driven talks which engage these approaches to reveal new insight into the microstructure of materials systems in emerging scientific applications and industrial challenges, particularly the use of EBSD data in Industry 4.0.
The meeting will be preceded in the mornings, by one of two optional workshops, for both advanced and novice users. The advanced course, delivered by Prof João Fonseca’s group at the University of Manchester, focusses on the use and understanding of High-Resolution Digital Image Correlation (HRDIC) combined with EBSD, centred on technical requirements and the underlying principles of post-processing data analysis. The novice course, delivered by Prof Brad Wynne, focusses on understanding what is under the hood of your EBSD software, with particular emphasis on maximising the potential of your EBSD data both before acquiring your data and during its analysis.

The European Light Microscopy Initiative was created in 2001 to establish a unique communication network between European scientists working in the field of light microscopy and the manufacturers of their equipment. Its aim is to promote the quickly developing field of light microscopy as a fundamental research tool for the life sciences and to strengthen the channels of communication between researchers, core facilities and industry.
The annual meeting, which has been running for two decades at various venues across Europe, has an excellent reputation within the microscopy community, making this meeting a key event in the calendar of hundreds of scientists and developers. The strength of this meeting lies in the mixture of scientific lectures on state-of-the-art, high-end microscopy combined with “hands-on” workshops and exhibition of the latest technology, organized by the leading companies in the field.
Due to the current situation, the 2021 meeting will take place the first time in a virtual format. We will do our best to maintain the unique format as well as possible. The focus of the scientific sessions is on leading edge developments and its implementation to life science.

Designed to talk about the current challenges in developing and using super-resolution microscopy with short talks and lots of time for discussion, this year the workshop will be split into 2 sessions, focussing on the topics of ‘using machine learning and AI in super-resolution imaging’ and the other will be ‘expansion microscopy’. Thoughts and ideas are encouraged to help define what is good/best practice around these challenges, and give an insight into future potential developments.
